We are starting a campaign to find the most used Paternayan colors, so we can share with Colonial your needs for the un-dyed colors. To this end, we have added a “back-order” feature ($0.00) to our website. This will let you order the un-dyed colors, and then we will work with Colonial to add these colors to their Paternayan dying list. Fifteen colors were added in the last 18 months.
Paternayan / Colonial Yarn Color Matching: Please be aware that whenever you are matching colors to an existing project, you must send us a strand of your current colors so we can match your colors to the yarn we have. Colors change with age and sometimes with dye lots. We work diligently to keep all the colors we sell matching our Paternayan color cards, but we also want to be certain you are getting exactly the color you want and need. Send your color samples to Florielgium at 367 Main Street, Weston, MO 64098 to be matched.
Can I place special orders?
Yes, if we don’t have your yarn, canvas, felting item, etc in stock, we will order what you need
Most special orders will arrive in 7-10 days.
Just call or email us and let us know what was not available to complete your order.
Will you calculate how much yarn I need for my needlepoint project? YES
Yes we will absolutely help you figure out how much yarn you need for any project from our Needlepoint Canvas Service to sweaters (Sweater Wizard) or scarves and socks, to various loom projects (rigid heddle, triangle, tapestry, etc).
Needlepoint canvas is one of our specialties and if you have any questions about yarn usage, color selection, canvas selection, we will gladly help you.
How do I buy items I see in your store pictures?
We frequently have customers ask about purchasing items they see in our web site photos or that they just dream about and need help buying the ingredients. We will create your kit for you and ship to any location.
All you and I need to do is figure out what you want and how much and we will send it to you.
We love to work with you on special purchases. The best way is to send us a copy of the photo you saw on our web site or the name of the photo (????.jpg), so we can find what you are interested in purchasing.
Of course, you can stop and visit our store in Weston MO (15 minutes north of the Kansas City MO airport)
